A couple of years ago we discovered Australian Buddhawood, and made The Buddhawood Box, a fragrance so woodsy that some people adored it and others throught it was like being hit on the head with a finely worked Aussie cricket bat. We started again, and Bodhi Language was the result. We still use Buddhawood, and cedar, sandalwood and white oudh to make it. We add rum extract and creamy musks, an aroma compound named Cedramber, because it smell like amber and cedar rolled in to one, a hint of vanilla, and then there's just a touch of the Earl Grey tea botanical, bergamot essential oil. It's softer and gentle, still with a whole tropical forest of woods, but as if they've been smoothed and polished, and served a nice relaxing rum cocktail.
